Welcome to our very first Case File! We are so excited to unveil our challenges. We are thrilled to have The Dusty Attic as our sponsor and delighted that their design team is joining the CSI team as guest designers for the month of January. This week, we have Mistra Hoolahan, Michelle Grant, and Jenny Burns joining us. We also have Nadia Cannizzo joining us as a special guest designer for our launch of CSI.
As you will see from the designers' layouts, the palette is very versatile, perfectly suitable for scrapping your recent holiday photos but also perfect for so many more themes. For the other elements of the challenge, we have a range of options, all inspired by our inspiration image, aka "The Scene." At the bottom of this thread, you will find some more details about this Case File, such as the RGB codes for the colors and more thorough explanations of the journaling prompts.
Since the CSI Case Files are brand-new to everyone, you will want to take some time to read the article "How the Challenge Works." Also, please take a moment to read the guidelines herefor some logistical rules.
In case you haven't figured out from Johnny Depp peeking through the magnifying glass on the front page preview, this month's inspiration images are all inspired by Alice in Wonderlandto celebrate Lewis Carroll's January 27th birthday.
So without further ado, we are pleased to reveal Case File No. 1...
